We are travel agents and had arranged to stay two nights in Kilkenny, however because of a flight cancelation we only got to stay one night. As soon as we arrived we were so disappointed that we had lost our second day there. First, we loved Kilkenny, it is the perfect village to visit with just enough tourist attractions to...

Just a perfect accommodation if in Kilkenny, and if your trip to Ireland doesn't include an overnight stay in Kilkenny re-write your itinerary...from the moment we arrived after an edgy drive from Dublin, Yvonne made us comfortable and relaxed...room was tastefully decorated and breakfast, with Yvonne's freshly baked breads, was much more than anyone would need to start the day...Yvonne...

SO COMFORTABLE, great hospitality, plentiful quality breakfast with the best fresh fruit and OJ on the planet, secure gate, reliable WIFI and spacious bath with wonderful walk-in showers. Prime location near the Castle and adjacent Kilkenny Design Center for art, shopping and dining, as well as a just one half block from the Hibernian pub and restaurant, or the bus/coach...

Butler Court is perfectly situated in Kilkenny with a great atmosphere. The rooms are decorated in shabby chic attire with careful detail to make your stay comfortable. The hosts are out of this world friendly. I made a boo boo and left my bag with keys in the room while traveling to another city. Not only did they email right...

We only stayed one night, but enjoyed our stay. The location is very convenient and the people were incredibly friendly and accommodating. We left early in the morning to head to Dublin, and she made sure our car was on the street just outside the main gate. Breakfast in the room (fruit, yogurt, coffee/tea, cereal, and bread) were just what...

Just rocked up and got a great room, very well located in Kilkenny , lovely helpful host, beautiful clean and comfortable room, breakfast is supplied in the room, so not a cooked one if that's what you want, but more than adequate, with filter coffee, yoghurt, fruit, cereal bread.

This is a long-delayed review of Butler Court... Excellent location (close to the Castle and city center), gracious hosts and comfortable accommodations! If you are in Kilkenny I highly recommend staying here.

We had a wonderful experience with Butler Court—we had no advance reservation and ended up blowing a tire just outside of Kilkenny, so were in need of help and a place to stay. This turned out to be just the place, and our time in Kilkenny was the highlight of the trip. Yvonne was a delightful host, helping us get...

We really enjoyed our recent two night stay at Butler Court. Yvonne and John were so helpful and welcoming, despite our late arrival. They provided a very helpful list of places to eat, pubs, and places to see in gorgeous Kilkenny. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the breakfast a nice healthy break from the traditional full Irish breakfast....

We could have spent our two days in Kilkenny just talking to Yvonne. So helpful with any questions we had & was kind enough to book us a tour of Smithwick's while we were off sightseeing elsewhere in town. We spent 11 nights in Ireland and this was the by far the most comfortable bed we slept in. Location was...
